- A series of new words and phrases, such as “Da Di”, “Mian Di”, “Mo Di”, “Di Ge”, “Di Jie”, etc., are constructed by “Di” in the “taxi (Di Shi)”. They are the result of syntactic word formation, mainly by analogy and influence of the abbreviative mechanism. In the process of continuous generation of new words and phrases, the semantic change of “Di” in “Taxi (Di Shi)” has changed from meaningless syllables to meaningful morphemes, indicating “rental cars” and “operating vehicles”. The two meanings are the relationship between the upper and lower positions.
